Airpark – “Le Tigre” Music Video

Nashville indie-pop duo Airpark has premiered the video for “Le Tigre” with HuffPost. The video was directed by Nashville filmmaker Ry Cox, and is filled with “sharp objects, churning electric guitars, creepy crawlies, a slithering snake and an abundance of mask appeal.”
“Le Tigre” is the propulsive lead single from Early Works, Volume 2, which was released on the band’s own label Eugenia Hall Records on September 15. Brothers Michael Ford, Jr. and Ben Ford launched Airpark in late 2016, one year after their previous project The Apache Relay disbanded.
The new EP arrived six months after their debut, Early Works, Volume 1, which showcased the duo’s ability to create evocative moments with the most minimal of instrumentation. That sense of minimalism gave way to something heartier as the band began touring the country in early 2017, playing more than 100 shows during the year. Along the way, Airpark bolstered its ranks to a four-piece band for live performances. As the musicians played together, their evolving atmospheric grooves made room for synthesizers, brotherly harmonies, syncopated guitars, melodic hooks and a globally-percussive punch. The foundation for Volume 2 was in place.

Back home in Nashville, Airpark recorded Early Works, Volume 2, with engineer and co-producer Ryan McFadden (Torres, Tony Joe White). The tracks were mixed by engineer Gavin Paddock (ZZ Ward, Valerie June) and mastered by Brian Lucey (Black Keys, Arctic Monkeys). A bold expansion of the band’s original sound, these four songs show the brothers’ ability to connect with the listener in both the loudest and most intimate of songs.
